Established in 1954, Essays in History is the annual publication of the Corcoran Department of History at the University of Virginia. Seeking high-quality work by emerging scholars, EiH publishes peer-reviewed articles in all fields of historical inquiry, as well as reviews of the most recent scholarship. EiH serves as a resource to students, teachers, researchers, and enthusiasts of historical studies.
Essays in History, the annual journal of the University of Virginia’s Corcoran Department of History, is currently soliciting articles, historiographical essays, and book reviews for its fifty-third issue, to appear in the winter of 2020. EiH continues its tradition as a source of high-quality historical work by emerging scholars. Our recent issues feature articles on such diverse subjects as antisemitism in colonial Algeria and the breakdown of the postwar Keynesian consensus.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2020. Article submissions should include a copy of the author’s curriculum vitae and an abstract roughly one hundred words in length. Authors interested in submitting book reviews should provide a current curriculum-vitae and contact the journal prior to their submission in order to confirm the monograph to be reviewed. We are also soliciting longer historiographical essays. These should be approximately 2,500-5,000 words and must review as least two or more recent monographs on a common theme. All citations should be formatted as endnotes. Please see our submission guidelines for more details.
